The management at Jay Suites is by far the worst and deceitful group I have ever dealt with. They are only interested in finding ways to take your money.

I am a venture-backed serial entrepreneur and recently moved back to NYC to start another company. I graduated from a university in the city and lived here for more than 10 years, so I am well aware of the office leasing market.

The only reason I rented an office from Jay Suites was because they were ok with 3 months contract in which I specifically asked for. After 3 months, however, they insisted us to stay for 2 more months, or they would take away our security deposits. I found out that they put in a fine print in the contract, stating you need to submit a written request to move out 90 days prior to the move-out date. In other words, I had to submit the request on the same day I signed the lease, or the lease gets automatically renewed the next day!

In my opinion this is plainly dishonest and unethical business practice when the management knew our lease inside out, but never pointed out the automatic renewal of the lease on the next day. I remember how the management always asked me if I were planning to extend the lease when I had no idea about this. It all just looks intentional to me, considering all circumstances.

Also, Jay Suites charges you an additional dilapidation fee of $250 per office which will be added to the final invoice no matter what. Are you serious?? I hope they look up the definition of dilapidation.

And their only excuse to all of these hidden charges? "read page # on your contract."

Guys, do not ever consider leasing an office from Jay Suites unless you want to spend your entire week reading +20 pages contract. And if you MUST do so, always be aware of hidden fees that they will add to your final invoice. Don't waste your time and energy arguing with these people when you have to focus on your business. Just stay away from this place. Not worth it.

There is a movement afoot by greedy and abusive landlords in New York City to skirt, avoid and diminish the protections afforded to Tenants by State Landlord-Tenant Law in the form of “corporate housing schemes” and “virtual office arrangements,” whereby these landlords obtain the full protection and advantages of being landlords, but do not comply with the rules and laws of Notice Requirements, Court Proceedings, Eviction Procedures, Warranties of Habitability and Safety, and other restrictions on Landlord misconduct.

If they are allowed to continue in this manner, tenants will quickly devolve into peasants on feudal landowner property, and this is a horrendous and devastating development for people, especially in these trying economic times.

Some of these virtual corporate office entities, after one has established a businesses there, engage in the following acts of misconduct: (1) do not give notices to pay rent; (2) do not give the tenant enough time to pay; (3) bar tenants from the premises with no recourse; (4) abruptly and without warning turn off the tenant’s heat water and electricity; (5) threaten and intimidate tenants to leave the premises with no warning; (6) refuse to accept or deliver or forward legal and regular and business mail; (7) harass and threaten tenants on a regular basis to drive them out as a tenant; and (8) other acts of serious and egregious misconduct.

In the case of corporate furnished apartments, landlords routinely: (1) threaten tenants with the abrupt turning off of heat/electricity/cable/internet/hot water if tenants don’t them large quantities of cash money without even showing tenants an invoice for either; (2) price gouge tenants regularly without telling them what they are paying for; (3) charge sometimes 100% more for an apartment unit than its fair market value; (4) take advantage of tenant’s bad credit history by doing the above; (5) threatens tenants verbally and harasses them and treats tenants like peasants with no rights; (6) trapse through tenant apartments with no warning or notice because the landlord often refuses to let tenants change the locks; (7) often spies on tenants using undetectable wiretapping and video recording mechanisms without letting tenants know; (8) and other horrible conduct of a landlord.

If you see or hear or observe any of these types of behavior patterns from unscrupulous and immoral landlords, you are invited and implored to report these entities to Housing & Urban Development (“HUD”), the NY Attorney General, NY FBI, and other agencies such as 311 and Housing Preservation Development (“HPD”), but since they apparently are not doing very much about it, it appears that all tenants’ rights in NYC are being eroded and destroyed by these often international foreign based companies, who are attempting to undo and unwind the landlord-tenant protections of the United States of America and New York City afforded by the Real Property laws.
